Today I'm linking up with Emily at chatting at the sky to share what I learned in the month of December. I thought it would be a fun short post that might help you get to know me better.
1. Our house gets the messiest in December. With all the holiday preparation and many other things happened this month, our house had reached the messiest it's been in a long time. If you know me in person, you know how much this bothers me. It's a good thing we don't host any holiday parties at our house. Despite the cleaning effort on Saturday, it's still far from being in a good shape. Now you know what I'm doing for rest of the day.
2. My son goes to a local Catholic school, and they go crazy with school events and charities in the month of December. When I say crazy, I mean crazy! From stuffing Christmas stockings for a local charity to the Christmas pageant and everything else in between, the school sure kept the parents busy. It was great for the kids. I was worn out by the end of the month.
3. Taking actions instead of
sitting, thinking, and planning what I want to do takes
my happiness to a new level. It's not that I have produced anything meaningful or
income-worthy, but doing something I truly enjoy gives me hopes
and visions I need. It puts the wheel in motion and if I keep going, you
never know, I might eventually create something meaningful. Now I
believe in art of doing things, but not in planning things.
4. I'm not a big fan of red meat, but I actually enjoy some lamb. It came as a surprise because I'm a veggie and grain kind of girl. Lamb was never my choice of meat especially with its distinct flavor. But I have to admit, I really enjoyed the lamp we had for Christmas dinner. I am going to get the recipe from my brother-in-law so that I can share that with you. It was that good.
5. Little kids grow fast. Much faster than I thought they would. Last night, I was going through some picture from this year's Easter egg hunt, and I realized how much my younger son has grown in the past nine months. Now his cheeks are less plump and his eyes portrait his intentions. I need to cuddle and squeeze my boys more often to remember their childhood.
I think that's about it.
Now it's your turn. What did you learn in December?
